We are looking for a number of technical writers for a French automation company. (Freelance and in-house). Many translators are also trained as technical writers so I thought this might be a good forum to place the ad but I wanted to ask in advance if it is ok to post a job on Proz for this.

Should be ok Jan 19, 2004

Hi John,
Thanks for asking beforehand.

Looking at what the Job Posting FAQ say...

What kind of jobs can be posted at

Translation, interpretation, localization and other jobs requiring the services of multilingual professionals or companies may be posted.

...this might be considered a borderline case, but I'd say you're within the bounds. I'll have a word with some other mods who are active on the Jobs Area.

Cheers, Ralf

I agree with Ralf. Jan 19, 2004

This is cross-linguistic, so it should be okay.
